Yeah, I saw them at Wembley in 90. The valley road went down well. We were scared shitless when Brent died that the tour would be cancelled, and more than bemused to see vince from the tubes (white punks on dope anyone?) and then again when bruce joined, though i have to say it all hung together fantastically.

I was at Wembley as well, but as I'd been a Tubes fan for years I was interested to see how Vince would fit in. I thought he was a great keyboard player and harmony singer. It was difficult to hear him there, Hornsby (who had also impressed me with his piano work) seemed higher in the mix.

Vince joined the Dead at the wrong time and place in both their careers for it to work out. I'm not sure Bruce wanted it to be a permanent arrangement for him, but I would have liked to hear them play 'The way it is'.
